MARIETTA, - - ;;SATVRPAY,MORNINGAPRIL -7, 1868
- FROM A MARIETTIAN IN NEW MEXICO.
AmfirquEriquz, N. M.. Feb. 26,'66.
Eltitbr of liariettian,:-1. have a faint
remsmhyande Of writing you a letter,
about a'year ago, that yOu'ilattered, me
by publishing; add in that letter I think
I promiiied - you another: Since Ihen
the great event in. our nation's history
has been • brought about;.'that is the
suppression of...the ri3bellion--an event
which caused as much jey here as any
other part of the Republic. - hitroduce
this subject tor the purpose of saying a
few,,:words as to the part played by New
Mexico during the long and sanguinary
contest. You are aware that this coun
try over•stocked with population.
I'suppose to-day - there' are not more
than'ninety thousand inhabitants in the
Territory, including the 'Pueblo Indians.
The vote at the last- election was some
over font-teen thousand. Yon will bear
immind that New Mexico during the war
was surrounded by hostile savages-'-the
Comanches, Apaches and Navajoes.*—
This latter tribe alone could bring two
thousand warriors into the field. Many
of the frontiei towns required all their
strength to, guard them against the raids
of the red enemy. .In one of
towns, at one time the men were all
absent when the Indians made a de
-scent on the• place. , The women hastily
armed) tbemselires as best they could,
many' of them' shucked theniselves of
t_keir- female. Apparel Mad donned the
.clothes of .the,other sexotridlascending
to the roofs of thelionses,-bravely.drove
off their assailants. The women who on
this occasion marshaled_the forces was a
Mrs. Pino, and the town, COMO.
Notiwitiistending all the . drawbacks,
New lidileo had in the 'field at one
time'five kegimetits of troops, and to
day has two regiment& in's'erVice; one of
Cavalry, and one- 'of 'lnfantiy: - 'The
CavalryPßegiment haVbeen' foar years
and alalf. in the service and has been
commanded nearly the entire - time by
the famous Colonel Carson. - It did
good service against the Southern foe,
during the invasion of this Territory,
and hie since covered itself with glory
in hattling and subduing the,,greater
portion-of the blood-thirsty savagee—
Many of the officers of _this Regiment,
inclCclingthe heroic Cclonel, hayelisen
brevetted for their gailantry, andmany
more deserve to be. Most of the line
offiedre. have bei3n promoted' from the
ranks for their bravery: The IrifaiitrST
_Regizbenr ie of moid-recent date aid` is

good. ssyv ice ; in ; defending the country
against.the inroadsof the Xndians. Thus
i y,omeep,we have, not:been far behind , the
other sections of the'Union in battling
the enemies of our common country.
I haie spoken of the Pueblo Indians .
You may not understand theteile. The:) ,
are Indians viho were 'subdued byLthe
Spaniards, and colonized ; similar to` oar
present system of Reservations. They
are nearly:Mvilized, liviug in very com
pact towns, and ale the best farmers we
have. Each town (or _Pueblo) received
a grant of land,fromold Spain, -which
is held in ; consieori : ;. a certain portion
heing pet epercby their . own , authori
ties, for.each family,--And I-assure yomit
is well cultivated. They have orchards
and vineyards, and prodoce among them
selves nearly eiterything they need.±
Freak the wool of their own sheep they
make most of their clothing, pirehasidg
only a little eaten cloth. -In the way
of -providons,lthey buy a little pollee
and - Sugar; fect.ther are poor custo
mers for the merchants. I would like
to give you ikAlescrip,tion of their-towns,
but, have not the ability- to do justice to
the snbject. They present a very unique
- ap - peittence 'to a- straoger. The 'front
part of _each hbuse is of only one story,
'and :this has no outer deer.: To 'enter,
you must" ascend a laddir to the rqof,

and - substratum being mostly of said,
old Barnes after having progressed down
wards about 'forty feet, found one morn
log upon going to work that, - the well
'had esseitially.caved in, and was, full
nearly to the top. SO, having 'the de
.sire which men have - of knowing _what.
will be said of them after they are dead,
and; no one being yetnstir, he concealed
himself in a rank groitth of burdocks.by
the side ITit'board' fence near the mouth
of the well , having first left his frock and,
hat on the windlaasOver the well. At
lengthf l breaklest being 'ready, a boy lies
dispatched to,call him to his meal,,when
lo I and behold,l it was seen ihat Barnes
was buried in the grave unconsciously;
dug by his own hands. The alarm being
given, and the fatuo eriembled,
decided to Gat eat.breekfaet, and then
send for the coroner, the ,minister, and
hie wife and children. Such apathy did
not flatter Barnes' pelf esteem:a bit, bat
he . weited patiently, determined to hear
what, would.be said and see whet was to
be seen. . .
Presently all parties. arrived. , and be
gan ".prospecting." the - scene of the.ca
tastropbe, as people zu3nally do in. such
cases: At length they drew together
.to exchange opinions.as to what should
be done. The. minister 'at once gaVelis
opinion that they had letter level up the
well and• let Barnes remain ;
he "he is now beyond ,the temptation
of sin, and in tike 'day of - judgement it
will make no difference whether be is
buried five feet under ground orfifty, for
he is bound to come'forth Sp either Case."
The coroner likewise agreed - that it
would `be a neediest expense to his fami-
y or . the town to-dieinterhim when he
was effectually burfed,and therefore co
iocided with the' minister.
His wife thought - as he had left his
hat and 'froell it would hardly be worth
while to dig-hint out for the - rest of hie
clOtheirind so it was decided "io let
him remain. But poorpld %twee, Who
